, without due process. but now, the obama administration is using that same authorizeation, that same justification to -- the same authorization, rather, to justify the use of drones. the aclu among others, has raised questions about this. chamcy is the spokesperson for the aclu. >> essentially claimed that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner in cle declaring american citizens and targeting them for killing far from any battlefield >> bill: so that is the problem. i mean, it seems to me that we are really saying yeah, the president can be -- well put, judge, jury and executioner. due process? there is no more. due process is out the window. there is no need to prove in a court of law, no judge is involved here at all. no jury is involved here at all. that person is guilty. this high-level informed high-level official of the united states decides that that person is guilty and we just send a drone in to whack 'em. i don't know about you. this is scary stuff. this will raises a lot of serious questions. i think we have got to be as
threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i
some tough questions about the obama administration's use of human drone strikes. >> reporter: lawmakers get their chance to grill the president's pick to run the nation's top spy agency. it comes in the middle of a growing controversy over u.s. drone strikes targeting terror suspects overseas. brennan helped manage the drone program. >> there were many cases we're talking about hardened terrorists but we do need to have a different approach when an american citizen is involved. >> reporter: now the white house is letting lawmakers look at classified information explaining the legal justification for using strikes targeting american terror suspects. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are raising concerns about the program. brennan is also expected to face tough questions about his time as a c.i.a. executive during the bush administration and what he knew about enhances interrogation techniques. >> he's going to face questions from democrats about his prior role in detention and rendition policies. >> reporter: brennan has said he was aware of the program, but did not play a
the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma
in pakistan, in yemen, in somalia. many, many more attacks under the obama administration, 360 so far, and probably just the president's first term, though, no doubt there have been some since he was knock raided for the second, xarpd to 50 in the bush 43 administration. so john brennan was pressed since the new rules on the use of drones finally came out secretly, given to members of the senate intelligence committee overnight, a promise by the administration there will be care taken to maintain american values, maybe even a court setup to review drone strikes before they're launched. here's john brennan. >> the president has insisted that any actions we take will be legally grounded, will be thoroughly anchored in intelligence, will have the appropriate review process, approval process before any action is contemplated, includes those access that might involve the use of lethal force. brennan is a sure bet to win confirmation. here's an irony. it looks lie he may get less trouble from republicans, this obama appointee, than from some liberal democrats like ron wyden of oregon, who j
. yesterday senator lindsey graham grilled leon panetta for the obama's administration lack of leadership on the night four americans died, only to learn in fact that our commander in chief, barack obama, did nothing to help the victims that night. now last senate senator graham was on the program and reacted to that exchange right here. >> if i were a family member, and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. the president of the united states talked to the secretary of defense for 15 minutes, never talked to the secretary of state until after the attack was over. never made a phone call saying how close are we to help these people? where is chris stevens? what did he do when he was told the ambassador was missing? we've had one ambassador killed in the last 30 years. the president of the united states has to account for his leadership here. i intend to hold him accountable. thus far the white house has delayed, denied, deceived and stonewalled, and this has to come to an end. he has to account for his leadership. >> sean: joining me now with a lesson
and we will not second guess you. the obama administration took a big step forward to second guessing and they then took a half step backward. the catholic church is saying, can we please go back to the pre2008 understanding of the relationship between social services and the government? you let us do it our way. we're doing good work. >> cornell, you know the vice president is a catholic. >> they are saying if you have religious issues with this, you can opt out. so i'm really scratching my head about this. again, i think the majority of americans are where the president is on this. we have the largest gender gap in modern times in the last election so it's fairly clear where women are on this issue. i think the catholic church needs to come to the 21st century on this issue and stop fighting this, frankly. >> if you would like to join the catholic churnl and argue from within. it's not for those of us who are not catholic how to organize -- of course the majority of americans disagree. the majority of americans are not catholics. they deserve, as all religious groups do, such import
to the obama administration for the latest proposal for providing women with contraceptive coverage and they are not happy about it. let's break it down in our strategy session. joining us is cornell belcher. and cnn contributor, former bush white house speechwriter david frum. he's a contributing editor at the daily beast. the administration came up with a resolution they thought, catholic institutions, universities or hospitals and contraception benefits for women. but now not so fast. president of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops says this, among other things. it appears that the government would require all employees in our accommodated ministries to have the illicit coverage they may not opt out, nor even opt out for their children under a separate policy. the stakes are so high, we will not cease from our effort to assure that health care for all does not mean freedom for few. so what does that mean? >> well, we have to take a step back to go to the beginning of the story. this is a confrontation that vice president biden tried to warn the situation away from. aside fro
gun violence. the 15 proposals are said to be similar to those proposed by the obama administration, including background checks on all gun purchases and bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. but some proposals are expected to have little chance of passing in the republican- controlled house. >>> marin county is about to make good on its vouchers issued during its gun buy-back program. $43,000 was set aside for last month's program that paid people who turned in guns but the money ran out, so organizers handed out $70,000 worth of vouchers. those vouchers can be redeemed a week from tomorrow thanks to private donations and funds from the county and its cities. >>> 5:09 now. operators of the north bay oyster farm are going to a federal appeals court now in their fight to kept their business open. interior secretary ken salazar has ordered the closure of the drakes bay oyster farm to return the area to wilderness conditions. a judge in oakland rejected their appeal. they have been given until mid- march to remove their equipment from

of the questions were about drones and the obama administration's policy. nobody tougher on john brennan, asking better questions yesterday than our guest, senate ron wyden from oregon. good morning, senator. good to see you again. >> great to be on your show. as a basketball player i love the full court press. >> indeed. senator, you had written this letter. i saw you earlier this week. you told me you were sending this letter with 11 other senators to the white house saying we want you to release all of the memos related to drone policy. they did respond at least in kind. are you satisfied with what you received so far? >> bill, when the president called, it was clear that the president wanted to change course, and i give him credit for what is clearly an encouraging first step. >> that's right. he called you in response to that letter. didn't he? >> he did. and he also is offering up another very constructive idea. >> that's trying to start in the weeks ahead a dialogue with the public with respect to these issues. applying our checks and balances t

. martha: what do you think it tells us about the obama administration's policy towards the war on terror? >> i think a couple of things. they don't want to get their fingers dirty. they don't want american casualties. known wants that. the problem i think is three in the whole drone war idea, number one we may have been very good at the very beginning when we were taking out key people in very difficult to reach parts of pakistan and afghanistan but we've now expanded that drone war and are the third thing martha that worries me probably more than anything we are lowering the threshold of when we use force. it's an important thing to have americans in the loop. by doing something where no americans are at risk. martha: it negates your ability to get intelligence from any of these individuals. >> yeah, they are dead. martha: we know the president is not fond of the gitmo model. it raises a lot of questions about the most useful way to apprehend people and get information from them. as far as we know, right we are talking about anwar al-awlaki, and american-born citizen who we know was an
are assigned to the patriot missile. >>> in a 16-page u.s. justice department report attorneys for the obama administration write it would be lawful to kill a u.s. citizen if a lie-level government official decides the target is a member of al qaeda who also poses a threat to the u.s. it's the most detailed analysis yet to be made public regarding the obama legal team's views about the lawfulness of killing an american citizen without a trial. >>> a new report claims more than 50 nations were involved in torturing terrorism suspects in the years following the 911 attacks. that report was released today by the open society justice initiative. it's a human rights organization. the report says 54 nations hosted cia locations where prisoners faced harsh interrogation methods, including torture. those nations, according to the report, included egypt, libya and syria. >>> well, a bill to improve securities at american embassies overseas has passed the senate. it's now headed to the house. the measure comes after embassy chris stevens -- ambassador chris stevens and three other citizens in killed i
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
. what is the obama administration's approach to border security? guest: it's interesting because it's becoming very come plegs. there is a strong border security to the imflation reform bill that's being discussed and to the proposal that was put together by the gang of eight senators who sat down and came up with a new proposal. their border security component is somewhat specific and their whole immigration reform package hinges on securing that border. the obama administration proposal has more to do with sbror enforcement of how we enforce verification of employment. the fact that people are here in the united states legally and that kind of thing, and is less specific on border element of that. now, to me, the whole hinge centers around what is a secure border. what is border security? and in fact, there is no definition. it's subject to different interpretation s and what they are doing in the senate proposal which i think is going to be the one that goes forward and is tweaked and debated and discussed, they want to put together a commission in border security. and it's this

i think as this administration, the obama administration has done, of expanding it to include wounded soldiers and looking at ways that we can support even more veterans, so in the same way that president clinton had to look at the times when we were in office, we have to examine these new times when the reality is people are working longer and harder, and it's difficult to access the law so we need to ask ourselves what we can do differently. >> 20-year anniversary of fmla, can you believe that 1993 seems like just yesterday? why do you think this law is so important? >> the reason president clinton has people tell him it's appreciated, 100 million families have used it, 14,000 in 2011. this is a law that affect all strata of american society. the problem we have and mika has written about this in national memo is we're far behind other countries in this. far behind when it was passed and far behind the benefits -- >> how is in a? how are we behind? >> other countries have paid leave. they have paid leave for dads as well as moms when a pregnancy is -- a baby is born. >> chec
